Two mistakes here, first shooting when you can't see your target...If his lungs were hidden behind brush or weeds you don't have a shot...

Second mistake, always approach game ready for a quick second shot...Leave the high fives and phone calls until after you have recovered the game...

nchawkeye speaks the truth. The real lesson here is to make certain the buck is down before making a call.

I did not make the call to my Father this year until after I knew my bucks were down.

Granted, I would have made a call if I had to start tracking the second buck I shot. I hit him hard in a snow storm, and if I was going to be tracking I had to move fast. I still had to verify the success of my shot first. So I went to where I had shot the buck, and saw what was to be seen. For me, that was dead buck this time.

I have wounded, and lost, only two deer in my years of hunting. It's something I always think about as I'm taking a shot. It's two too many lost deer. When I miss these days, I get upset with myself. I take pride in my ability to put the lead where it needs to be, and hate to fail at my job.
